Senator Lindsay Graham of South Carolina has said he will support making the planet "a cleaner, safer place" but only if we "use the coal that God has given us."

According to a story at rawstory.com, Graham told Fox News on Thursday: "I won't vote for any climate change bill that doesn't allow a dramatic increase in nuclear power. I'm not going to vote for any climate change bill that doesn't allow us to use our coal deposits."

He continued:

"What would happen in this country if you build a hundred nuclear power plants in the next thirty years? It would create millions of jobs. And we need to use the coal that God has given us. If we can do that," conceded Graham, "I'm also willing to help the planet be a cleaner, safer place by controlling carbon in a way that doesn't put us in the dark or out of business.

There you have it. Coal: a gift from God. We must use it.
